Have you ever considered purchasing a brand new Bentley? What about having a baby? At first glance the questions may seem absolutely unrelated. However, we started counting, analyzing and comparing and the results and conclusions were somewhat surprising.
A Bentley may be a whim, a dream-come-true or simply a means of transport. A child is a long-term commitment, a huge responsibility and a financial investment. While some people postpone having a baby until they are financially stable, others apparently do not realize that even the initial basic expenses might be overwhelming.
Even if we don't want to spoil our children, it is so easy to get carried away that many of us end up overspending. The variety of accessories for children is bewildering. Needless to say, we all want to provide our children with whatever they need, but there is a thin line between what they really need, what we think they may need, and what is redundant. Overindulgent parents who have tendency to spending sprees often fall prey to the massive children products industry, so beware of the many pitfalls and try not to overspend.
